THE Hamburg-American Line and North German Lloyds are each having their two new mail vessels fitted with ice-making and refrigerating machinery en the Linde system. In addition to the usual OQld chambers and ice-making plant, two of the state- rooms have been cooled. This is said to be the first J instance of state-rooms being cooled by means of refrigerating machinery, though in several cases such machinery is used for cooling dwelling-houses on land. SMALL particles of cinder and metal are constantly getting into the eyes of engine-drivers and stokers. Tbey have one invariable way of getting them out. I' No sooner has the driver of an engine got a nasty bit of grit in his eye than his companion, the stoker, I epens the eyelids quite wide and licks out the unseen fragment—which might produce tragic results some- j times—with his tongue. The public knows little of j this heroic remedy, but on every line in the world it I' is being applied every hour of the day. All surgeons i recognise that this is often, with all their beautiful instruments, the only way. And amongst the thousands of women connected with our fishing trade who have to clean herrings it is also practised as the only method of gettiug out of the human eye j the very minute herring-scales that lodge there and soon produce serious mischief if not removed.
